Who is known as father of optics?
Consequently, who is the founder of optics?
325 BC–265 BC). Euclid began his study of optics as he began his study of geometry, with a set of self-evident axioms. Lines (or visual rays) can be drawn in a straight line to the object.
Also, what is the contribution of Al Haitham in the field of physics? Ibn al-Haytham was born in the year 965 in Basra, and died in about 1040 in Cairo. He was one of the earliest scientists to study the characteristics of light and the mechanism/process of vision. He sought experimental proof of his theories and ideas.
Similarly one may ask, what did Al Haytham discover?
A polymath, he also wrote on philosophy, theology and medicine. Ibn al-Haytham was the first to explain that vision occurs when light reflects from an object and then passes to one's eyes. He was also the first to demonstrate that vision occurs in the brain, rather than in the eyes.
Who was the first true scientist?
